PUBLISHERS' NOTE 

This volume makes no attempt to trace all the Dabys, Darbys, 
and Derbys in America. It is limited to the descendants of 
Thomas Derby, of Stow, Massachusetts. The genealogy of another 
Derby stock has been compiled by Professor Samuel C. Derby, of 
Columbus, Ohio, but has never been printed. His manuscript, 
we believe, has been deposited in the Boston Public Library, 
where it may, no doubt, be consulted by those who do not find their 
names or those of their ancestors in the present volume. But there 
were still other Derbys established in America at an early date, 
some of whom are referred to in the Introduction, which, how- 
ever, makes no attempt to be exhaustive. 

The arrangement adopted in this book is simple. An individual 
number is given to every descendant of Thomas Derby mentioned 
in the book, the treatment of persons who died unmarried or in 
infancy not differing in this respect from that of heads of families 
whose descendants are traced further. This is logical and scien- 
tific, permitting further references to any persons mentioned in 
the work by these numbers. It permits future critics simply to say, 
for example, that "55, Derby Genealogy, unaccounted for; married 
and died at such and such a time, and had this and that child," 
or that "100, Derby Genealogy, did not die young, as has been 
supposed." 

In certain systems such numbers are given only to those whose 
descendants are traced further, and are thus family and not really 
individual numbers. In the present work, children who become 
heads of families, which are noticed further on, are distinguished 
by the words "See Family — , page — " while each family in turn 
appears under the caption, "Family — , see page — .** 

The page references are for the sake of the many who com- 
plain of difficulty in tracing out their lineages in numbered 
genealogies, in spite of the supposed scientific character of current 
standard systems and their undoubted simplicity to the initiated. 
In the present book the name of every child whose descendants 
are traced further is followed by the number of his own family 



8 DEEBY GENEALOGY 

and of the page of the book on which it appears, while the caption 
above each family is a reference back from the head of that family 
to the page where he or she appears as a child in his or her 
parents' family. Those who find difficulty with current systems 
need, in the present case, only to look up in the Index the page 
on which appears their own name, or that of parent or grand- 
parent, as the case may be, from which point the lineage is easily 
traced both up and down by means of the family numbers and 
page references. 

This system has been adopted at the suggestion of The 
Genealogical Department of The Grafton Press, which has also 
devised the Owner's Lineage at the end of the book. By means 
of this arrangement the owner of any copy of this book need 
trace out his ancestral line but once, writing the name of each 
ancestor in the proper space, with the ancestor's individual number, 
and the pages of the volume where the ancestor's name appears. 
Every feature of his personal lineage is thereafter indexed for 
convenient reference.

INTRODUCTION 

The antecedents in England of Thomas Derby, of Stow, Massa- 
chusetts, have never been ascertained. An ancient Lincolnshire 
family of Darby or Derby bore arms, argent, a chevron between 
three garbs, sable. 

The first notice of the Darby family which we have met with, 
says Thompson, in his History and Antiquities of Boston, Eng- 
land, is in a pedigree of the Tamworth family, where it is stated 
that Nicholas Tamworth, of Tamworth, married Jane, the daughter 

of Darby, of Leverton. This was about the year 1200. 

Ralph de Darby, of Bennington, occurs in 1346, Thomas in 
1346 and 1353, and Robert in 1357. Roger Darby, of Leverton, 
married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Strange. Their son 
Ralph married Alice, daughter of John Read, of Wrangle. This 
Ralph Darby is mentioned by Dugdale as residing at Leake in 
1517. His son, Thomas Darby, of Bennington, is mentioned in 
1536, 1539, 1540 and 1544. Alicia, or Alice, his wife, daughter of 
John Langton, is mentioned in 1547. William, son of Thomas 
and Alice, was alive in 1571. His son, William Darby, was liv- 
ing about 1620. We find mention of Thomas Darby, of Leake, in 
1597, 1602 and 1642. He died in 1659. 

A Thomas Darby, of Leverton, occurs also in 1642. 

There are several memorials of the Darby and Gilbert families 
in the floor of the chancel of the church at Leake. 

At a short distance from the Moat House is a large ancient 
building called Darby Hall, which was the residence of the fam- 
ily of that name who were considerable proprietors in this and the 
adjourning parishes for several centuries, and allied by marriage 
to the Dymocke family. 

Darby Hall is partly in Leake and partly in Leverton. It is 
now the property of the heirs of Oldfield. We do not know 
whether the chief branch of the Derby or Darby family resided 
at Bennington or at the house above mentioned, standing partly 
in Leake. 

Ralph Darby resided in Leake in 1517, William Derby in 1571, 



10 DEEBY GENEALOGY 

and Thomas Derby in 1797. Another Thomas Derby died at Leake 
in 1659. Dymoke Darby died at Leake in 1701. 

So far Thompson. Some Darbys or Derbys settled in New 
England at an early date. The Company of New England, says 
J. B. Felt in his Annals of Salem (1845, page 110; and vol. ii., 
1849, page 526), consisting of many worthy gentlemen in the 
City of London, Dorchester, and other places, aiming at the glory 
of God, the propagation of the Gospel of Christ, the conversion 
of the Indians, and the enlargement of the King's dominions in 
America, and being authorized by His Eoyal letters patent for 
that end, at their very great costs and charges, furnished five 
ships to go to New England for the further settling of the Eng- 
lish plantation that they had already begun there. To human 
perception, all was dark concerning the political career of this 
commonwealth when William Darby, of Dorchester, England, pe- 
titioned the Council for New England, February 18, 1623, that 
Richard Bushrode, of the same town, and his associates might 
begin a plantation at Cape Ann, which led to the settlement of 
Naumkeag, now Salem. 

The original manuscripts of T. L. Winthrop, given in the 
Collections of the American Antiquarian Society, vol. iii., exxxv., 
under the "Origin of the Company of Massachusetts Bay that came 
with Winthrop," contain the "Representatives to General Court 
in England, held at Deputyse House," October 12, 1629, as follows : 

William Darby, 
John Smith, 
George Philips, 
Simon Whitcomb, 
John Davenport, 
Thomas Andrews, 
Theophilus Eaton, 
John Endicott. 

The will of Roger Harlakenden, County of Essex, England, 
names as one to settle his estate, Henrye Darby, "now of Newton, 
in the Massachusetts Bay of America." 

Savage refers to John Derby, of Plymouth, Massachusetts in 
1637, son of Christopher, from the west part of Dorsetshire, Eng- 
land. He removed to Yarmouth before 1643, when John Derbe, 



INTRODUCTION 11 

Yarmouth, appears among those able to bear arms, and was dead 
in February, 1652. The inventory of his estate is dated Febru- 
ary 22, 1656. He had a son, born the last day of February, 1648, 
whose name is lost from the record, and a son, Matthew, born 
February 8, 1650. Matthew was subsequently of Barnstable, and, 
according to the statement of one Joseph Lumbert, made to one 
Simon Bringley in the street, in July, 1671, Matthew Darby, of 
Barnstable, was to receive all of the property of one John Turner 
if the latter failed to return from sea. Sarah Darby, of Barnstable, 
who married Jabez Lombard, December 1, 1660, was probably a 
sister of Matthew. 

Bichard Derby, of Plymouth, 1637, called "gentleman," was 
a brother of John, of Plymouth, 1637, and thus another son of 
Christopher. Bichard Derby sold twenty acres of land to Edward 
Doty in September, 1639. {Plymouth Colony Records, vol. xii., 
page 38). This Christopher and his son John were undoubtedly 
referred to in the will of "John Chipman, now of Barnstable, in 
the Government of New Plymouth in New England in America, 
being ye only son and heir of Mr. Thomas Chipman, late deceased 
at Brinspittle, about five miles from Dorchester in Dorsetshire in 
England," in which document he refers to "his kinsman Mr. 
Christopher Derby" and the latter's "son, John Derbe." 

These Derbys are probably to be identified with the family 
of that name, of Asherswell, now called Stirthill, in Dorsetshire, 
England, mentioned in Hutchin's History of Dorsetshire, as the 
Derbys of Asherswell, lessees of property which was once a manor 
and hamlet. A Christopher Derby was buried at Asherswell in 1603, 
while Thomas Derby, son of another Christopher, was baptized 
at Stirthill, or Asherswell, in 1616. Reference is also found to 
Christopher Derby, gentleman, of Dorchester, in Dorsetshire, Eng- 
land, who flourished at a period which would suit the identifica- 
tion of him with the Christopher, father of John and Richard, of 
Plymouth, Massachusetts. 

Agnes Derby, relict of Augustine Derby, of Bisley, in the County 
of Surrey, England, made a nuncupative will May 20, 1650, 
proved June 1, 1650, in which she bequeathed a sum in trust to 
Henry Collier, of Horsabell, yeoman, "He to pay Edward Derby, 
in New England, ten pounds when he shall come and demand the 
same." 



12 DERBY GENEALOGY 

This Edward Derby was of Braintree, Mass., and may 
be identical with the Edward Darby who, according to the Boston 
Records, was married to Susanna Hook, January 25, 1659, by 
Bichard Bellingham, Deputy Governor. The latter settled in 
Weymouth, Massachusetts, where, according to the Weymouth 
Records, he had a daughter Mary, born December 29, 1660, and 
Priscilla, born June 20, 1672. Probably he was the father of 
Edward Derby who married first, in Weymouth, about 1687, Ruth, 
daughter of Simon Whitmarsh, by whom he had a son, Edward S. 
Derby, born in Weymouth, May 18, 1688; and who married, 
secondly, in 1705, Rebecca (Sumner) Hobart, of Hingham, Mass., 
who was born at Lancaster, the daughter of Roger and Mary 
Josselyn Sumner, of Milton. 

Joseph and Thomas Daby, Darby or Derby, who removed from 
Concord to Stow, are supposed to have been brothers, but docu- 
mentary proof of such a relationship has not been found. Nor is 
it known whether they or either of them belong to the Derby 
family of Plymouth, that of Braintree, or that of Weymouth, Mass., 
or whether they were immigrants, born in England. 

Of these two, Cornet Joseph Daby married at Sudbury, Mass., 
January 14, 1676-77, Jane Plympton, daughter of Thomas and 
Abigail (Noyes) Plympton. She was born August 18, 1655, and 
died at Stow, Mass., March 7, 1728. Joseph Daby married, second- 
ly, Elizabeth (Plagg) Clark in Concord, about 1731. She was 
a daughter of Eleazer Flagg and Debora Barnes, and married, 
first, Benjamin Clark and, secondly, Joseph Daby. She died 
October 21, 1784, aged 93 years. 

The pages which follow are devoted to Thomas Derby and his 
descendants. 

Acknowledgment is here made of a special indebtedness to Miss 
Mary L. Derby, daughter of Benjamin Derby of Leominster, 
Massachusetts, for her valuable assistance in connection with this 
work; and to her and to the many others who have furnished in- 
formation the compiler expresses her thanks.

FIRST GENERATION 



FIEST GENERATION 

FAMILY 1. 

1. Thomas 1 Derby, Darby, or Daby, in 16S4 removed from 
Concord, Mass., to Stow, Mass., with his wife Mary. Stow was 
incorporated May 16, 1683, at which time "12 foundation lots," 
each containing 50 acres of upland and 15 of meadow, were granted 
to the first settlers in the following order: Eev. Boaz Brown, 
Gershom Heald, John Butterick, Ephraim Hildreth, Thomas 
Stevens, Stephen Hall, Samuel Buttrick, Joseph Freeman, Joseph 
Darby, Thomas Gates, and Shadrack Hapgood. Other lots were 
afterwards granted, including one to Thomas Darby on June 17, 
1684. Thomas and Joseph Darby, or Daby, as their names were 
often written, were from Concord (Shattuck's History of Con- 
cord, pages 44-45 ) . Thomas Daby was a Xarragansett soldier under 
Capt. Joseph Sill in King Philip's War, 1676 ; and may have been 
the Thomas Daby who joined the First Church of Salem, Mass., 
October 5, 1863. Thomas Daby of Stow was elected in 1706, a 
deacon of the Stow Church, which was organized in 1706. He died 
before December 29, 1749. His wife Mary died January 4, 1727, 
at Stow.

4. John Daby (Thomas 1 ), born January 26, 1687, married, 
first, Hannah, who died November 17, 1744, aged 58 years 5 
months, and married, secondly, widow Elizabeth Holden of 
Groton, Mass., April 20, 1747. She was born in 1689, and died 
September 9, 1767. 

John Daby was one of the original petitioners for the creation 
of the town of Harvard in 1731. His estate was partly within the 
old Lancaster bounds. He bought of John Willard, October 27, 
1718, lands lying upon both sides of the brook at the northern 
end of Pine Hill, extending along the Lancaster and Stow Line. 
He was a blacksmith, and his son, Joseph, a joiner. Together they 
built a saw and grist mill or mills upon the stream at the west- 
ern foot of Pine Hill about the date of Harvard's incorporation. 
Joseph Daby is mentioned as proprietor of a gristmill in 1748. 
He sold both cornmill and sawmill to Jonathan Symonds in 1751. 
John Daby's sawmill is mentioned in the records as early as 1733, 
when he provided a part of the material for the meeting-house. 
From the first he held a prominent place in town, his pew in church 
being the third in dignity. The site of his first home is not 
definitely known, but appears to have been in Stow Leg, near the 
Lancaster line. John Daby was Corporal in 1757 (Nourse: History 
of Harvard). The following items appear in the records: "Feb. 
ye 3rd, 1723-4, John Darby for Som alowance for a hiway Taken 
Through ye Land he purchased of John Willard. 

"We also mesored the Hiway in John Darbes Land and find it 
to Run in his Land one hundred and fifty Eods and we think he 
ought to be alowed three acres for one, this return was exsapted 
the hiways alowed and ye alowances Granted by the Propriety." 
(Annals of Lancaster, page 210.) John Daby died January 6, 
1769, in Harvard, Mass.

Eng. Sir D. Nurse, born in the 17th century, was of Chitingstone, 
in that county. (Berry's Genealogies of the County of Kent) . Barry, 
(History of Framingham, page 102) gives the following: "The 
town directed the seating of the meeting-house according to each 
one's proportion of all the taxes assessed for the meeting-house; 
that those arriving at sixty years of age, should be added 4d. per 
year to each one's rates; and that the seats be dignified as in the 
old meeting-house, till they come to the fifth seat below; and the 
rest to fall in successively. May 22, 1738, voted that Mr. Benj. 
Nurse be seated in the deacons' seats."
